There will not be another Obama in the White House any time soon…

Despite rumors that former First Lady Michelle Obama is eyeing her own bid for the Presidency, her office is quashing those claims once and for all.

“As former first Lady Michelle Obama has expressed several times over the years, she will not be running for president,” Crystal Carson, the director of communications for Obama’s office, said in a statement provided to ITK on Tuesday.

Obama “supports President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election campaign,” Carson said.

The Hill has more:

The statement rejecting any chance of Obama attempting a return to the White House as president, first reported by NBC News, comes after Republicans, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) and former presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, publicly floated the evidence-free idea that the former first lady could replace Biden on the ballot in November.

Commentators have also touted Obama as the “best chance” for Democrats to retain the White House in a potential matchup against former President Trump.

However, despite the Left’s calls for Obama to consider running for public office, she has adamantly tamped down the speculation.

In 2019, Obama said there was “zero chance” she would run for president.

“There are so many ways to improve this country and build a better world, and I keep doing plenty of them, from working with young people to helping families lead healthier lives,” Obama, who founded the voter registration and engagement organization When We All Vote in 2018, said at the time.

“But sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office will never be one of them. It’s just not for me,” she said.
